  Skied the Upper Arb Sunday night. The groomer was out and set tracks on 75% of the trail and expanded the width. It was slow and soft with the new snow, needs time to set up and some additional rolling to be really good for skating but coverage was great and it was a pleasant ski.

Grooming 
[ Trails Open: All, Good skis ]
  The upper and lower sections of the Arboretum are groomed as of this morning. The lower Arb had a track set yesterday and all trails except one connector are groomed. Upper Arb was groomed for skating and conditions are excellent but still a little soft in places due to drifting. There is no track set in the upper at this time but will be set tomorrow are Saturday. 12k Classic tracks in lower and 6k of skating in upper.

  We skied a loop from the Waterford parking lot to the Kettle Hole Marsh. Trails are all packed and many look freshly tracked. Very nice conditions. Thanks, groomers!

  Good coverage, very soft and rather slow going. Poles went deep in places. Looked to have been groomed earlier in the day, but needed a cold night to set up well. A new ski trail I'd never seen before was groomed on the east side in the oak savannah, narrower and no track, but very skiable with some good hills and turns. The deer here are very tame.
